Ok, edited my character sheet a bit. I think I'm set, aside from backstory and physical description. BBB, if you could check off my items for me, I ended up spending 42,200g not counting mundane item costs.
Anyway, backstory outline: Aureana was part of a nomadic people. Her tribe was skilled with acrobatics, and incorporated jumps, leaps, tumbles, and so on into their way of attacking. She was exiled from her tribe for some reason (possibly related to the death of an important member of the clan, maybe her partner in an arranged marriage). Her tribes rules involve giving everyone that is exiled a quest to redeem themselves. Her quest was to find a legendary weapon that one of the tribes' ancestors wielded, and return it to them.
While it is customary to give everyone exiled a quest like this, it is not always customary to send them after something that actually exists. Several times a peson's "quest" was to retrieve something that never actually existed. Aureana's aware of the possibility, but she still pursues the weapon out of honor. Regardless, she has heard many rumors and gone many places in search of the weapon, but has yet to find anything solid. Right now, her most promising lead places the weapon in Acerack's tomb, so she has set out to find a group to accompany her.
(It doesn't matter to me whether the weapon is in the tomb or not. If BBB wants to come up with a weapon for her to actually find, that's fine, otherwise I'll make up details in a bit.)
Also, since I'm not familiar with the math in 3.5, how much AC does a normal monster have at this level?
